Internet of Things platform vendor Cumulocity recently joined with Sonera to enable agile IoT user deployments.
Cumulocity’s platform will be installed in Sonera’s own cloud environment to allow improved security as well as high-speed customer solutions. With this alignment in place, Sonera can provide their customers with a fast and reliable introduction of IoT solutions and an open and continuously advancing IoT platform.
Sonera is an enabler of digitalization that can provide private cloud services from its own data center in a secure manner.
“Sonera enables automation and versatile development of different maintenance and servicing processes. For example, we can monitor drainage pits and sewage pump systems and alert the customer when the pit is full. The platform also enables customer solutions that can be used to measure property’s indoor air conditions, monitor and position transportations, or optimize vehicle solutions and servicing, for example,” says Robert Wendelin, head of Sonera’s IoT business.
“Our partnership allows the growing number of Finnish organisations who recognise the benefits of embedding industrial internet solutions into their operations to do so in a rapid, low risk and scalable manner,” said Jari Salminen, Cumulocity’s managing director. “The Cumulocity platform allows new assets to be connected in minutes, the condition of those assets to be monitored and controlled in real-time and end-to-end business workflows across business systems to be created at the click of a button. Use of the platform allows organisations to focus their efforts on their value adding activities. The combination of Cumulocity’s capabilities and Sonera’s local competence ensure our customers receive a reliable way of embedding IoT into their business.”
Last month, Cumulocity teamed with Cisco Jasper, Cisco’s IoT Cloud business unit to help enterprises streamline the delivery of IoT services and applications through connected devices. This collaboration allows Cumulocity to integrate the functionality of the Cisco Jasper IoT service platform, making it easy for joint customers to manage the delivery of IoT services and applications on the Cisco Jasper platform from within Cumulocity.
The Cumulocity IoT application enablement platform is designed to facilitate an open ecosystem with free and immediate access to test accounts, open developer documentation and tools. The Cumulocity platform is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, which is sold through mobile operators and is extensible to enterprise end customers.
Through this integration, mobile operators who resell Cumulocity services will have the benefit of having Control Center functionality built into the Cumulocity-based applications they make available to their enterprise customers.
